reach a boiling point. nbc's tracie potts joins us now from capitol hill. good morning. >> good morn pentagon. it's going to be a big day, a big week and a big season headed into the elections as congress tries to figure out whether or not to extend these bush tax cuts that are expiring at the end of the year. now, coming out of the weekend republican leader john boehner who had been critical of the president's plan signaled that he might support it in order to get something done before these tax cuts expire. but all hopes of a compromise were dashed when his party came out very strongly yesterday and said that these tax cuts must be preserved for everyone, the poor, the middle class, and, yes, the wealthy. those who make over $250,000. his party is not the only group to support that. we now know of at least three democrats who say, look, this is the wrong time with our economy still not on good footing to raise taxes. we need to preserve these tax cuts for everyone. so it's a fight not only against republicans but against some members of the democratic party as well. lynn? >> thanks
